As seasons change, from fall to spring, explore trees at our Connecticut River Valley and hill town sanctuaries. Sign up for one or all to learn to identify native trees by their leaves, buds, bark, and flowers. We'll also look at tree communities, how they are changing, and what we can do to improve forest health.
With a panoramic view of the Deerfield River Valley, High Ledges supports a variety of northern hardwood trees: sugar and striped maples, yellow birch, American beech, various oaks and hickories, hop hornbeam, and many others. We'll hike through the forests to the top of the Ledges, all the while learning how to identify trees once their leaves have fallen. We will also look at forest composition, how it might be affected by climate change, ane what we can do to help.
This program will be conducted in accordance with current Municipal, State, and Mass Audubon Covid-19 protocols. The program will take place entirely outdoors.
